Izbica Kujawska pronounced [izˈbʲit͡sa kuˈjafska] is a town in central Poland with 2,808 inhabitants (2004). It is situated in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship (since 1999), having previously been in Włocławek Voivodeship (1975-1998).


In the Izbica forest on the way to village Wietrzychowice there's a group of megalithic tombs called Polish Pyramids. They are elongated mounds up to 120 meters in length and a height of 2–3 meters with originally built entrance on one side and more than one grave inside. Built probably around 4000 BC.[1]
